I was doing some work over the weekend, and suddenly I had a submenu for the Box item in the toolbar. I don't remember everything that it included, but there was a Table, a Note, a Tooltip, and a couple other items, but today it's not there. What's going on with that?

Items under Box menu?
I'm trying to get content populated from a Google Sheet, as shown in the documentation. It's kind of working, but I'm having trouble getting the rows of data to populate in the right order. It seems to populate items in a completely random order, and when I refresh the data, it changes the order randomly. Is there a way to force the order to be consistent with the Google Sheet?
Pin to an object
One thing that I would find enormously useful is the ability to pin the location of one object to another. For example, I'm working on a component with an auto layout. I have an "Add" button on the right, and I'd like to have a tooltip for the button so that when I "add" an item by putting the interaction to show another component, the tooltip will move with the add button, which is the last item in the auto layout.
Advanced Auto Layout
It would be really useful to have advanced featured in auto layout like being able to change the orders of objects in the auto layout. I know I can send to front and back, but to be able to move something from second to third, for example, or second to fifth.
Is UXPin down?
Getting a "Reload page" message over and over. Previous topics around this refer to technical issues-just wanted to check and see if it's on my end or not.
Light/Dark theme issues
Suddenly, UXPin is reverting to the light theme every time I open a prototype. Is this a known bug? Is there a fix?
I've been using UXPin for about a year and a half, and while I like it, I'm concerned about the lack of updates in the product, especially given some of the gaps I see, like a decent table tool, lack of autosizing items based on text content, etc. It's also concerning that the community here isn't nearly as active as I'd expect for a tool in widespread use.
I like UXPin better than any prototyping tool I've ever used, but I'm beginning to wonder if it's going to be something I want to keep using for the long term because it isn't being updated.
SVGs changing background color
I have a bunch of color svg icons in prototypes, and when I drag some of them onto the canvas, the background color changes completely. Is there something I can do to stop that from happening? Is this a known bug?
Interactions using checkboxes
Is there a way to create interactions using checkboxes? For example, if a checkbox is checked, show an element, but if the checkbox is unchecked, hide that element?
